We have Chisora who's too small even though he tries.
We have Thompson/Helenius/Dimitrenko who got physics but all lack both skill and will to fight.
We got Povetkin/Arreola type of boxers who maybe got will and potentially physics but skillwise were debunked by Adamek/Huck.
This list can go on forever but imo Wlad will stay champ untill someone who has all 3 qualities shows up or he retires.
...and even if this would happen (hopefully it will, but I can't see it yet) it's not said that Wlad won't be the better / stronger man. It's true though - if this kind of fighter comes out of nowhere, we will have a fight at last.
Tricks' argumentation is spot on - good thread
Yesterday's fight was boring, but you really can't blame Wlad for it.
